Oris’ Reef-Saving GMT Is The Brand’s Very First 18K Solid Gold Watch

Jan 29, 2020

Category: Style

Oris has spent many years as a leading proponent for the conservation and protection of the world’s waterways, and for the company’s valued customers, actions have always been more prominent than words. After introducing other wrist-worn variants within its aptly-named “Aquis” line, the company has decided to focus on yet another vital component of our planet’s ecosystem, the Carysfort Reef.

Oris’ latest timepiece arrives as an attractive 43.5-millimeter peripheral that takes a page from the company’s illustrious offerings, calling upon a beautifully-realized 18-karat yellow gold Aquis Case, an automatic Oris 798, base SW 330-1 GMT movement, and a 42-hour power reserve to keep it precise and dependable over time. A dual-tone ceramic bezel works in tandem with the watch’s striking blue dial, Superluminova BG W9 indices, and hands, while a premium blue leather strap contrasts perfectly with its 18-karat yellow gold buckle. But the timepiece’s Carysfort Reef motif is its true claim to fame, celebrating the over 30,000 planted corals in partnership with the Coral Restoration Foundation in Florida. Head to Oris’ website to pick up one of these limited-to-50 models for around $18,338.
